The wombat says: Let’s take a trip through the casino into the table games section where you’ll find games like Double Bonus Poker and a whole bunch of roulette and blackjack games.
And what do we have here then? Why it’s the latest addition to NetEnt’s table games portfolio, and it’s called Blackjack Touch – Single Deck. So what makes this release different from all the other ruddy online Blackjacks out there, I hear you ask? Well, firstly, playing with a single deck of cards is the main difference in this version of the table game, and secondly it has been designed to be compatible with all mobile devices. Let’s give this game a go!
Look and Feel
The new user-friendly touch interface creates a rather nifty Blackjack experience Wombat fans. Yes, those clever so and sos at NetEnt have created an touch- interactive game that has everything, smooth gameplay, outstanding graphics, and some unique new features like a Rebet option and a game history log that will tell you how you’ve been doing and what your stats are. Perfect for the number crunchers amongst you…
This wombat thinks its a must play for all the Blackjack lovers and we are loving the chilled-out soundtrack too. But if you’re not such big fans of the jazz lounge vibe, you can always play with the sound off…
Ant the best bit about it? Well, this game is famous for it’s low house edge. Games like Louisiana Double Poker get nowhere near Single Deck blackjack on that front which has a lean and mean pay-out of between 99 and 99.5% Nice!
Your standard Blackjack rules apply here Wombat fans, and the main objective of which is to make sure that the total score in your hand does not exceed 21 – and as you know, in Blackjack, you must compete with the dealer to win.
There are a few variations like this game is played with 52 cards of 1 deck of cards and play Blackjack Single Deck Touch with only the one hand… All you have to do to get started is place the chips on the green baize and hit on the ‘Deal’ button to see if you have got more points than the dealer in your hand.
There will be 2 cards drawn the beginning, and you can decide to keep the cards by clicking on the ‘stand’ button, or to draw more cards by clicking on the hit button. There are also 3 different sized chips, £1, £5, and £10 which can all be used to place your bets – so there’s something for all types of gamblers.
The Aces are calculated at 1 or 11 points each. K, J, and Q offer 10 points each while the other cards are worth their face value. Land a Blackjack in your hand straight away, and your bet will be doubled… Cheers NetEnt. And don’t forget that if the first 2 cards you are dealt have the same value – you can split ’em. Which means better odds all round!
As in standard in Blackjack, if the dealer’s first card turns out to be an Ace (the lucky so and so), then you can buy insuarnce against his Blackjack. It will set you back half your bet, and will pay out x2 if he manages to get that 21.
NetEnt have come up trumps here. Blackjack Single Deck Touch brings this classic table game to us while we’re on the hop, and is very playable indeed. Thumbs up!
